Just recently, I visited Europe. The style there was much different to here in Australia and the styles and trends were clearly shown. The best thing about all of the fashion was the fact that most of the time people weren't worrying on what others would think, but on what they think.
Paris was amazing and the communities we visited were super friendly. One of the top shopping malls/warehouses was located near the Saint Germain area and was called 'Le Bon Marche'. Here, all the latest designer fashions were released and only here can you get exclusive items.
As well as having a large variety of fashion (including clothing, accessories, shoes, lingerie etc.), Le Bon Marche had also been hosting a few expeditions that had specific themes.
The first theme was on Brooklyn. They had set up a movie theatre area with deck chairs to sit on. It was a large black screen that showed a video Polo & Pan had made where (as described) 'the legendary Coney Island attractions have entered the urban landscape to add some of the magic of a funfair'. They edited it very well and made it look like the rides from Coney Island were scattered all around the streets of Brooklyn. The video is below.
Another theme was on Thom Browne (New York). They had set up a room in which all of it's walls were mirrors. On the ground the same pair of shiny silver shoes were lined up neatly. I believe it was trying to give a modern impression. It also showed how the weirdest and maybe even simplest fashion can become quite popular.
This is only one of the many shopping centres in Paris but i believe it is one of the best. Fashion all around Europe is super 'kool' and approached as more of a way to express yourself.
